Creating a WhatsApp group of males and females to share Islamic knowledge

Q: I am currently studying in a medical university. I want to share Islamic knowledge with my classmates. Is it permissible for me to make a WhatsApp group of my classmates, including both male and female, and then share Islamic knowledge on that group. There will be NO personal contact with any female.

There are already many other WhatsApp groups in which the whole class is added for study discussions. So if I use the same platform to spread Islamic knowledge, is it permissible?

A: Including males and females in the group is unislamic. So how can you teach Islam from an unislamic forum.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
